I am slowly overcoming my fear of public speaking. I know I know, this might sound weird because I am an actress, but there is something about slipping into a role that is so much less scary than talking to large groups of people about things that matter to me.
I'm glad to be facing this fear because my Mom, Judy, and I were invited by an old friend, Marci McPhee, to give the Keynote address at DEIS Impact!, a "festival of social justice" thrown by The International Center for Ethics, Justice, and Public Life and the Student Union at Brandeis. We spoke about THRIVEGulu, the not-for-profit organization that my Mom created in 2010 to assist the communities of Northern Uganda to heal from the traumatic events of war, sexual enslavement, extreme poverty and lost opportunities.
Many thanks to Marci, Brandeis University, Momma Judy and all those who came out to participate. I believe in this work and have seen first-hand what it can do!
